'If we care enough, we can teach people how to be compassionate'

Comment

I think it's possible to teach these qualities if the person you are teaching is willing to learn. I believe there are some people in care work (who really shouldn't be) who unfortunately would not be interested in developing such qualities. I am thinking of some of the thugs /bullies who worked at Winterbourne View for example. Yes I know there was poor leadership etc.. etc.. but it doesn't take a genius to work out that you don't treat people like that.
